THIS WEEK IN HORNET COUNTRY: Saline Boys Basketball Levels Up, Hockey Team On Target
As we prepare to leave for Detroit to watch the Saline girls' basketball team at Little Caesar's Arena, here's a quick update on the Hornets this week.
The Saline boys' basketball team had a big week, taking two games against East Lansing, 51-40, and Flat Rock, 69-61, to improve to 5-3. Saline has won 4 of 5.
Dylan Mesman had a big game at Flat Rock, scoring 23 points. Zach Fidh and Harrison Rogers also had strong games. In fact, Fidh and Rogers also played well in the win over East Lansing - a game where freshman Jonathan Sanderson starred again.
Saline visits Dexter Tuesday.
Here's an interview with Fidh, where talks about his bigger role on the team this year.
Saline took its first loss of the season playing a fast and athletic Toledo Rogers team at Redford Prep Monday. The Hornets played well enough to win after a slow start, but the shooting went ice cold at times. Saline battles Walled Lake Central Sunday evening. Saline is 7-1 - although the loss isn't listed on the MHSAA page, so maybe it won't count (because Rogers is from Ohio?).
Tuesday at home Dexter is the biggest game of the young season for Saline. Saline also hosts Woodhaven Friday.
Saline lost to Dexter, 40-34, Wednesday. Ypsilanti Lincoln was scheduled to participate but did not. In the loss, Tyler Fedototzkin, Brice La Fleur and Kyle Barbarino won by pin.
The Hornets were at Wyandotte Saturday. No results were posted.
